Introduction:
iDash job run report lists -656 as the exit code for RUNNING jobs.
Question:
Why does the iDash job run report show a job with -656 as the exit code?
Answer:
The "Exit Code" entry in the iDash "AutoSys job run report" comes from the iDash DB's idash_run table. This value in turn comes from the AutoSys Database. The value is temporarily stored as -656 in the AutoSys DB's Exit_Code field for the ujo_job_runs table while a box job is in a RUNNING state.
